Hi Pierre-Jean,

Thanks a lot for your report.

You've discovered a serious bug that was introduced recently.  I fixed
that.  Please pull 744c4a9c.

You are right, Local-Mailbox was not implemented.  Please pull 82c5c521.

Fixed in commit 383272e0.  Please pull.

I'll address this soon.

Yes, that's reasonable.  I'm going to implement that too.  However, it
will not eliminate the need for mtstailor, because, apart from the
url setting, the latter can also contain localname, localdomain and
username settings.
